he was probably too busy swerving and avoiding the hedge

Black 159 in my mirror (think, was in fog) west bound M27 coming up to Fareham West 8ish this morning.
Strange one as it was driving in the poor lane

I tend not to bother waving other Alfas, unless they do so first.

I've noticed a few locally, waved/nodded and got a toffish "pah, you don't even have a TI" look without a second glance.

I guess there are two types of owners..

Had a good chat with a fellow 159 alfa owner. Got a buzz from it. Can't bet someone being friendly and acknowledging your alfa.

On a trip round Ireland, so far Dublin, Belfast, Bushmills, Enniskillen, now Donegal, didn't see a single Alfa in NI (not just 159s), but was pleasantly surprised to see a silver 159 1.9 (Turismo or lusso) parked just off the main square in Donegal.

Stromboli 159 Ti SW on a 60 plate heading down the M42 yesterday (Tuesday) lunchtime in the miserable weather. Single pipe so probably a 2.0JTDm.

Filthy paintwork (as everyone's is this time of year) but still a lovely looking machine and stood out a mile amongst the rest of the bland (filthy) Euroboxes.

Well I've yet to be spotted and I've driven a white Spider for over 4 years all over Lancashire.
Cars don't get much more distinctive than mine!
